Travelling to Bielefeld

Please see Information on train schedules and recommended airports

From the Train Station to the University

Upon arrival at the station in Bielefeld, exit towards "Bahnhofsplatz" and cross the square. Walk past the white hotel "Bielefelder Hof". A few steps down the street, leaving the hotel to your left, you'll find an entrance to the "Stadtbahn", marked with a blue sign showing a "U".

Take Line 4 in the direction "Universität/Lohmannshof". Trains run every ten minutes during the day, and the ride takes about ten minutes. Exit at the station "Universität".

Tickets for Public Transportation

Tickets are available from the machines. The correct fare is called "BI Erwachsene". Currently (September 2017), a single ride is 2,60 Euro (or 8,40 Euro for four rides). Please note that the ticket has to be validated at one of the little boxes near the escalators. Should you start a ride at a different stop, you might need to validate your ticket on the train.

Tickets are valid for 90 minutes and allow for an arbitrary number of trips, including roundtrips.

From the Stop "Universität" to my Office

Walk towards the university building. The main entrance is closed due to constructions. Please use the ramp between building sections C and D. Once inside, take the stairs up one flight and enter the main hall. Cross the hall straight and go through the glass doors. Take the elevator to the 5th floor. Exit to the left and turn right again in front of the mailboxes. My office V5–103 is the first on the lefthand side.
